East Lothian Council’s (ELC) Planning Enforcement Charter 2020 outlines how the planning enforcement process operates, in addition to setting out the standards of service to which ELC strives to achieve when enforcement enquires are made.

Planning enforcement forms one of the most complex aspects of the Planning System and often has long timescales associated with it. The enforcement procedures which ELC has adopted are in line with Scottish planning legislation and are considered to be fair, reasonable, consistent and transparent.
